“So much hope but BLAND”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We read the reviews before going and figured we would try it. The place looked great and the staff did a great job. The appetizers were good but the entrees had no flavor. I mean, even some salt would have been helpful. They have the right items, the location and idea. Just add some flavor

Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

I came over following Trip advisor recommendation.
I ordered a Fried calamari and a chili an sea bass that came with 2 sides. Everything BUT everything was tasty and fresh and the fish was crusty from the outside and white and juicy.

“Best Food on the Island”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

The Island grill has a great variety. Their food is upscale, but the restaurant is a casual atmosphere. Reservations are recommended, or be prepared to wait!

They just started serving breakfast, which I am looking forward to trying.

“Okay”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Cute place, love the decorations but other than that, nothing special. Food is decent but I won't be going back. I had banana stuffed french toast which was pretty bland on flavor and they were a little stingy on the syrup. Prices are in line with the resort town.

“Could of, should of been better”
Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

We went looking for an off the grid place which it was. Service was good. Food just average. The shrimp and corn chowder was good. Salads were good. The tilapia with maple encrusted pecans was overlooked and very unappetizing. The crab cakes do not match up to Maryland crab cakes. I would pass on both of these. We have been there for lunch and were much happier. I would save this choice for when the others are crowded.
